SOURCE: my sony dsc-t3 cybershot has vertical lines on the display

This is a problem known to Sony. They had a recall on the T3 because of it. They extended the recall, however, the extension ended in about March of '08. Some recall - You had to stumble on it at their web site to know about it!
I got my T3 repaired in May of '08, but had to pay shipping both ways to Laredo, the nearest Sony repair place. They insisted on insurance, so it cost almost as much as their flat fee repair of $121.
They fixed the camera, but it didn't focus as well after that. I didn't realize that 'til after their 30-day repair warranty period was up.
Here's their email, if you want to wrestle with them:
SONYSVCLRD@AM.SONY.COM
Recently I began getting "Turn power off and on again" message. It's a common problem, but again, Sony offered no suggestions. They basically wanted $121 to fix it.
The FixYa site helped me "fix" it by flipping the lens cover open (down) with my finger when turning it on.
I am not buying any more Sony cameras, and will probably sell this one with a disclaimer. There are too many trouble-free high-spec cameras around to fool with Sony-baloney. They've gone too far downhill.
I'll probably get a Canon S90. It's almost the same size as the T3 and much higher-spec.
Hope this helps!

The CCD imager is faulty and it has to be replaced. A well known problem with the M1. Contact SONY and see if they will replace the CCD imager unit free of charge. They did but recently they stopped the free replacement for a lot of models.

  1. Ensure the camera is turned on.
  2. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures.
  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. NOTE: Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon [FIG. 1]. This button could be a standalone button or incorporated as one of the control arrow buttons depending on the model of camera.
  4. If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
  5. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
  6. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
  7. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
  8. Perform a reset procedure on the camera.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required. The Sony Service Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

"No memory space on internal memory"


Go into the setup menu and scroll to "setup" and follow the on-screen instructions. You may also want to format the internal memory with your memory card out of the camera.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P92


Take the battery out and hold the power button down for 30 seconds.  This will reset the camera.  Put the battery back in and see of camera works properly.  If not, it could be the CCD sensor and Sony may repair it for free.  Call Sony at 800-222-7669.  Might as well give it a shot...a cybershot.
